Apple Expected To Join Partnership On AI

with one comment

Apple Inc. is set to join the Partnership on AI, an artificial intelligence research group that includes Amazon.com Inc., Alphabet Inc.’s Google, Facebook Inc. IBM, and Microsoft Corp., according to Bloomberg.

Despite having initiated somewhat of a lead on the rest of the industry with the introduction of the Siri virtual assistant in 2011, poor Siri seems to have been held back in AI school.

The Partneship on AI is a tech industry body that was established to agree on best practices in the use of artificial intelligence. It was formed in September, with part of its brief to make recommendations in the areas of ethics, fairness, inclusivity, privacy and trustworthiness

Apple’s admission into the group could be announced as soon as this week, according to people familiar with the situation.

9to5 Mac suggests Apple’s reluctance to join may have been prompted by secrecy concerns. In addition to its ethics focus, the group has an emphasis on collaboration between researchers working for different companies.

Siri, fingers crossed…Siri, did you hear me?…SIRI!???!!!!
